  • Not very interesting but do visit as there is not much else to do. There are animal rides and a few snacks available to munch on. 
  • I dont know why there are so many POINTS in 'hill stations' of Maharashtra and Southern India lol. Nothing major here. 
  • yes ..this is very nice point and one of the main spot for tourist. spots like 3 monkeys and echo point here are unique. 
  • One of the popular points in Mahabaleshwar, this point offers one of the best views of the hills and valley around. Well worth a visit.
  • Awesome views. Love visiting this point. Parking is an issue when number of visitors is high.
  • I visited to times this place. once in summer and second time in begining of rainy days.... second time my experience was awesome. litle droplets of rain and clouds makes the path to reach the elephant head, so romentic. but drawback is u cant see anything around, because of cloud..... but you surely will love the journy....
  • Great place with nature beauty.
  • Don't miss the sun set when you are here. It's a breath taking view
